Paintings

Ethereal

Ethereal, 2023. Oil on Linen, 12x16" Included in the 38th Annual All Florida exhibition. Available.

December 2, 2021

2022 Oil on Canvas, 16x20". The Naples sunsets never disappoint. I decided to name these paintings after the dates on which they were captured, thus noting a particular time. Where were you on that evening?

Ode To Joy

2022, Oil on Panel, 9x12". Available.

Purple Faerie

2022, Oil and pastel on Oil Paper. 12x16". Available;. The light on the model’s pale skin and her blonde hair gave her an ethereal quality that I had to paint. This piece combines oil paint and pastel, thus allowing me to combine both methods I love.

Not What I Thought You Were

Not What I Thought You Were. 2020. Oil on Linen, 12x16". Available. To the viewer, this is a simple still life. To me, it's a statement on how we make assumptions on things, only to learn otherwise.

Torn

Torn. 2022. Oil on Canvas, 8x10". Available.

The Soft Divide

The Soft Divide. 2020. Oil on linen, 14x16". Available.

Why?

Why? 2020, Oil on Linen, 12x16". Available. I love painting pumpkins, especially the white ones. I responded to the coolness of this, but it also became a contemplative exercise in why I do what I do.

Garden Pumpkins

Garden Pumpkins Oil on linen, 8x10" Available.

2020

2020. 2121, Oil on Panel, 6x9". Available. 2020 is a statement to the defining events of the year. I think we went into the year with such hope, but the realities of a pandemic, racism and sexism were all confronted. In my smaller world, I wanted to show the beauty and grace of a woman silenced. This is a small painting to match the oversized drawing of the same pose.

She Has No Voice

She Has No Voice. 2018. Oil on Linen, 16x20". Finalist, 2018 Portrait Society of America's Members Only competition, Outside the Box category. Available. She Has No Voice represents the inability to speak up by feeling suppressed. The idea came around 2008, but I waited until my skills improved to work on it fully. While I still search for my artistic voice, I no longer wait to be asked to speak my truth. Around me are images of paintings I admire.

The Gap

The Gap. 2017. Oil on canvas, 17x24". Available. The Gap was named from the famous Ira Glass quote. The drawers contain objects representing aspects of me. I'll let the viewer decipher what they mean.
